I have been having a pain on my four first bottom front teeth/gums. Similar to the pain like when you bite onto a really cold ice cream.

I am loosing my front teeth gums, removed plaque via scaling with no effect yet, I am scared that my front teeth will be without gum soon, what to do?
Periodontitis?: From your post, it appears that your gums are receding. Without any other info to go on, the best advice i can give you is to have a local periodontist evaluate your condition and try to stabilize the bone loss to help prevent tooth loss. Can't tell if the problem is limited to your front teeth or to your entire dentition, but professional care is mandatory. ...Read more
Just my front teeth gums are receding. Dentist suggested that it can grow via scaling(i.E.Plague just on front teeth)but its not effective yet, so sad?
Receding gums: If the gums are slightly receded from heavy plaque and calculus formation, and the teeth are scaled\root planed along with you following through with proper brushing and flossing, I have seen the gingiva (gums) return to a health state along with some "creep" back of gum tissue. Anything more than that requires intervention with special periodontal surgical techniques. Consult a periodontist. ...Read more
I have bottom front teeth gum recession and told that there is a lack of good blood supply. Can recession still be treated with grafting?
Periodontics: As dentists, we treat teeth based on the symptoms we see. If there's a cavity then a filling is needed, etc. A periodontist follows the same protocols when dealing with unhealthy gums. If there is advanced gum disease, then a graft is one of many possible solutions that can be recommended. If a 'gum specialist' has recommended a grafting surgery (and you trust his opinion) then heed his advice. ...Read more
Periodontist never said to me over 4 yrs. that I had major bottom front teeth gum recession issue. I switched and DDS did bone and alloderm. Hmm?
Hmm ?: If you're insinuating that your prior periodontist did not diagnose or treat you correctly, you'll have to have another local periodontist review your treatment records. It may very well be that your major problem developed over the four years, even though the periodontist did their best to save those compromised teeth. All the best... ...Read more

Sore or painful gums may be a sign that you are at risk for or already have gum disease. This is a serious problem, which should be checked by a dentist.See your dentist for evaluation. Do not delay, ...Read more

Please see qualified specialist Orthodontist for (usually free) initial exam. ...Read more

Orthodontist: Please speak to your orthodontist. As discussed in my prior answer to a similar post you made, since there is less space between your teeth, the gum tissue has been compressed in that area. Over time things should be fine. Great oral hygiene will help. ...Read more
